Whether there's division in your household, at church, at work, or in government, there is a healing answer, and prayer will help you find it. For centuries, people have been turning to prayer and have found solutions and safety in times of war and times of peace, in times of lack and times of plenty. The Bible records many of these experiences, and the guests on this chat will be able to share other, more contemporary examples.
If you're looking for solutions to divisiveness in any part of your life—or the life of your country—join this chat with a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science and with a Christian Scientist who has founded an organization that is working for world peace.
